I had the same issue and ordered 2 x new struts from Alex Pop at elite motors and that fixed the issue. Pretty easy install no tools required

in cold weather there is less pressure in the cylinders. It will be better in the summer.

more then likely the Pistons popped off the mount use a flashlight look down the piston where it connects .
Problem is the piston is to long and when they are in the close position the piston bottoms outs before the the truck is fully closed . And pops off the mounting ball . This also one of the reasons why the trunk deck doesn't fit well.
